As 6sqft asked when the 39th floor at The Pierre Hotel at 795 Fifth Avenue hit the rental market two years ago, if you’ve got the cash, why buy when you can rent for $6 million a year? Now that opportunity to refresh your enormous outlay every month is again seeking a renter at $500,000/month, keeping its title as the city’s most expensive rental. The massive 4,786-square-foot space has merely a butler’s kitchen, but the assumption is, of course, that you wouldn’t want to be slaving over a hot stove in a full-service hotel anyway. And that service includes twice-daily maid service, an on-call physician, room service, two restaurants and a chauffeur-driven Jaguar.
The full-floor space includes the grand Upper East Side hotel’s Presidential Suite, usually rented to hotel guests for a remarkable $20,000 a night. The decor is pretty much what you’d expect–plush, private and populated with velvet, marble and Murano glass chandeliers.
You’ll get a private elevator, and, of course, those cinematic 360-degree views, including panoramic views across Fifth Avenue through Central Park.
A tranquil and spacious corner master bedroom offers postcard-perfect views of Fifth Avenue and Central Park.
Each of the suite’s bedrooms has its own marble bath; a luxurious en-suite master bath offers a suitably grand dressing area with a deep soaking tub. There’s a fully equipped butler’s kitchen for midnight snacks, plus curated artwork, technology by Bang & Olufsen and Bose, and toiletries by Etro.
The aforementioned five-star hotel services include concierge service, twice-daily maid service, a fitness center, business center, access to the hotel’s restaurant, access to a chauffeur-driven Jaguar XJL, and The Rotunda, “an iconic room re-imagined by renowned architect and designer Daniel Romualdez with tableside champagne & cocktails.” Short- and long-term stays of a month or more are welcome.
